Or you may recognize him from one of the 1,300 films he has appeared in — we won’t judge. Click here for a behind the scenes video from the shoot.

Last summer we worked with Martin Papazian on a poster image for his debut film then Least Among Saints, which was released in October. Papazian is the writer, director and lead actor in a film about Veteran Anthony Hayward (Papazian) as he returns home to the remnants of his former life. Dealing with the trauma and aftermath of war, Hayward feels trapped and uncertain about his future, but when his troubled ten year-old neighbor Wade (Tristan Lake Leabu) calls out for help both of their lives turn for the better. Read more here.
Least Among Saints deals with a very real topic — post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in returning Veterans. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, PTSD is believed to occur in 11-20% of Veterans that served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, 10% of Desert Storm Veterans and 30% of Vietnam Veterans. Statistics are limited to information gathered from documented cases; many Veterans with PTSD never seek counseling. The Least Among Saints team full supports and honors all returning Veterans and their families — an extensive list of organizations that offer services to Veterans can be found on the official movie website.
